Maillard Middle School is a dual track English and French Immersion School. This allows students to take core classes (Humanities (Language Arts/Social Studies), Mathematics, and Science) in the language of their program choice. About 30% of our students have been in an immersion program since Kindergarten. This year, Maillard is offering English and French Immersion blended 6/7 classes and grade 8 classes. The classes are divided into 3 teams: 2 of the teams are composed of 3 English Grade 6/7 divisions and 2 French Immersion grade 6/7 divisions and 1 of the teams is composed of 3 English grade 8 divisions and 2 French Immersion grade 8 divisions. Students at Maillard Middle are divided into 4 Advisory houses. All students are in Advisory for 2 x 17 minute blocks every week within their house. With each advisory, tudents participate in intramurals and special event days, such as Magic Olympiad and Winter Activity Day. Explorations are offered to all students and the classes are conducted in English. All students go to one Exploration class for each of 5 term. Our Exploration classes are Home Arts, Music, Technology Education, Digital Literacy and Leadership (grade 8) or Social and Emotional Learning (grade 6/7). We have a Breafast Program that runs each morning serving a healthy breakfast consisting of at least 3 food groups and we have a Community HUB program that is supported by an off-site Coordinator and an on-site Youth Worker as well as Place Maillardville. Registration for these programs are ongoing and may be found on our home page. Thanks for joining in to feel the magic of Maillard with us as we work to become even more awesome! "Be Awesome! Be Yourself!"
